On September 11th 2001, so many people innocently went about their normal morning routine before heading to work on what was a very normal day having no idea the tragedy that was about to come. In New York City a plane hit one of the twin towers and the world watched thinking it was a truly terrible accident until a second plane hit the second tower and it was clear that America was under attack.
As a 14 year old I can still remember coming home from school and seeing the news as the plane hit the pentagon and the fourth was “brought down” we later found out about the heroics of those on board United 93. Going to school the following day in an English lesson we talked about it with newspaper reports, all struggling to understand it.
In all honesty even now twenty years later I still cannot understand this truly tragic and horrendous day, which then turned to weeks, months and years of grief for so many people. The brave emergency service workers doing their duty and not really having any idea what exactly was happening.
Over the past few weeks I have found myself watching so many documentaries about this day and the true amazing moments of human courage to help save others, it really has been an emotional journey to see and hear about more stories from this day.
Forever rest in peace to all those people from around the world who were impacted on that day and still now.
Young couple Gatsby and Ashleigh travel to New York City for a week, as she has an interview with famous film director Roland Pollard and writer Ted Davidoff. While Gatsby must try to avoid his family considering he told his mother he could not attend her party that evening.
It is 1985, Ronald Reagan is in the White House and AIDS is causing mass death across America. We get to take a look at Manhattan and as Prior Walter tells his lover Louis that he has AIDS everything else will link with that and six people intertwine more than we could possibly imagine.
That’s right I am talking about the 1998 romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, which for as long as I can remember I have totally adored and loved. I think they are even better together in this one than Sleepless in Seattle. It’s one of those delightful little films that you can put on when your feeling a little bit low and feel so much better because of watching it. I even went through a phase many years ago of watching it over and over again, you know as soon as you’ve finished watching it putting it back on again!
So with plenty of passion and love for this pretty much perfect Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan collaboration, I have put together this gushing piece and hope that others feel the same way about You’ve Got Mail as surely it cannot actually be hated when it does so much good?
Legendary music star Diana Ross has just turned 75 years old and this documentary based around her 1983 concert in Central Park which had to be abandoned on the first night of trying due to a freak thunderstorm, she went back the next day and so it all her fans!
